- About Us
Thank you for coming to our prize giving assembly, we hope you enjoyed it! We are very proud of all of the children's achievements this year and we would like to wish the children that are leaving us all the best for starting their new adventure in reception. Well done everybody!
We are very excited to welcome the returning children back to nursery on the 4th of September. We also look forward to meeting our new starters on the 5th of September when they attend with their grown-ups.
We hope you all have a relaxing summer holiday and would like to thank you again for your continued support!
Thank you to everybody that made it to our Mini Olympics. We hope you enjoyed seeing what the children have been learning throughout the year with Mrs Thompson. You were also such great sports joining in with our parent races!
The children were very excited for their transition day at the primary school. They got the chance to see their new classroom and meet their new teachers. We are very proud of everybody for being so confident and brave when dealing with the change. I cant believe how grown up you all have become and I know you are going to do amazing things in your new reception classes!
Our little rays of sunshine this week are Karl Coulson for being so kind and friendly. He has had lots of pom poms in his jar and his behaviour has been fantastic. Keep up the great work Karl! Charlie Miller for her amazing name writing. She has been working extra hard to be able to write it before she starts school in September! All of Mrs Blackett's group have been chosen as rays for always sticking together and getting on so well. They all worked hard to build a path stretching from one side of the garden to the other. It was lovely to see you all working as a team. Well done everyone! Blake Wilkinson for joining in with our sports day. You demonstrated brilliant balancing and climbing. Well done! And finally Jack Moore for coping so well on his transition day in his new reception class. It was lovely to see you settling into your new environment. Great work Jack!
We would like to say a huge thank you to everybody that made it to our stay and play summer fayre. Thanks to your kind generosity we raised £226.28 which will be used towards resources for the nursery children.
We would like to say a huge thank you to the Hunwick Dog Parliament for visiting us this week, along with some of their furry friends. They talked to the children about how to greet a dog safely and to “be a tree” if a dog jumps up and frightens you. We then got to meet the lovely dogs and they showed us lots of great tricks!
Our little rays of sunshine this week are Scarlett Charles for being so incredibly brave when we had a visit from the Hunwick dog parliament. Scarlett is afraid of dogs but managed to stay for the whole talk. Well done Scarlett, I'm very proud of you! Noah Ross for starting to seek out his friends. He has formed a friendship with Kaden and it is lovely to see Noah playing with him. Great work Noah! Finlay Craggs for his brilliant cutting skills. He cut his picture out so accurately and then trimmed the edges to make it even neater. You blew my socks off Finlay! James Hawkey for trying so hard to write his name and is mastering day by day. Keep practising James, a big well done! And finally Halle Buddin as it is great to see her having fun with her friends. She has a brilliant imagination which she uses in her role plays. Today she went on holiday and then off to the swimming pool. Halle I know you will be a brilliant inspiration to the new children in September!
This week we read “The Tiny Seed” and talked about where seeds come from and what they need to grow. We then planted our own tiny seeds and gave them soil, sun and water. We are excited to watch our cress heads so we will have curly green hair!
As the summer weather has hit us, we have had lots of fun in the sun! The children have loved cooling down in the paddling pool and relaxing with their snack in the shade.
Our little rays of sunshine this week are Mia Gibson for her fantastic initial sound work. We played a sound game and even when I tried to trick Mia, she chose the correct sound each time. Well done Mia! Sophie Wilson as her confidence is flourishing each day! It is lovely to hear her talking more confidently to adults and seeking out other children to play with. Keep up the great work Sophie! Logan Hall for doing a brilliant job rolling the dice, recognising the number and deducting the correct amount of seeds from the apple. Logan enjoyed this activity and even asked to do it again. Great work! Teddy Buston for his amazing sound work today. He remembered all of the sounds we have learnt so far and was able to match the initial sound to the corresponding pictures! And finally Harrison Binyon for his enthusiasm and love of learning. He keeps telling me “I'm a clever clogs” and I have to agree! He shared some super facts about seeds and what they need to grow!
We had so much fun visiting Hall Hill Farm. We went on a tractor ride, milked the pretend cow, bottle fed the lambs, held the chicks, guinea pigs and rabbits. To end the day we watched the sheep race and enjoyed our ice lollies in the barn. All of the children made us very proud as their behaviour was fantastic throughout the day. Well done boys and girls!
As the chicks have grown big and strong we have had the chance to hold them! Everybody was very kind and gentle when stroking them and we have loved having them at nursery. We will miss them when they go to live on the farm tomorrow!
Our little rays of sunshine this week are Jude Johnson for consistently coming into group and sitting so smartly. He often contributes to group time activities and gives great input. Jude generally has a fantastic attitude to nursery life. Well done Jude! Abigail Bowes for her bravery when holding the animals at the farm. Although she was a little scared initially, she still wanted to hold the animals! We are very proud of you Abigail! Holly Symcox for being super brave when we visited the farm. At first she was unsure holding the animals but as the day went on she became braver. Well done Holly, I am so proud of you! Halle Ashurst this week for her enthusiasm during our farm visit. She told me “I'm so excited to give the sheep some milk” And finally Brax Close for his enthusiasm and excitement during our visit to the farm. Brax was so well behaved and made me very proud!
What an egg-citing week we have had! As the eggs have been delivered we have talked about the life cycle of a hen and made some brilliant pictures explaining each stage. The children have loved watching the chicks hatch and we were very lucky to record it for you to watch!
We have also had a visit from a Farmer and she brought some of her animals for us to meet. The children were very gentle when petting the hen and the lamb.
Our little rays of sunshine this week are Kaden Bestford for always being such a kind friend. He has been a brilliant friend to our new starters and always looks after them. Thank you for being such a caring little boy Kaden! Maisie Clarey for her brilliant initial sound work. Maisie found a ball outside and told me “Ball starts with a b” Well done Maisie! Rowan Freeman for coming into nursery so well with gran! He was also a little sad when his friend went home, but he decided he would find another friend to play with. Well done Rowan! Ivy Hendry as she has shown so much enthusiasm for learning about the farm animals. She loved acting out the role of a farmer, milking the cows and feeding the lambs. She is also very excited to meet our very own chicks! And finally Dakota Bilgin-Darvishi as he has impressed me so much with his confidence coming into group independently. He has also told me all about the farm animals especially the horses. Wonderful job Dakota!
Just a little reminder that nursery/school will be closed on Monday 18th June for a training day. We will see you on Tuesday 19th!
